Building upon recent innovations in the study of auditory culture, Sounds Modern presents a history of ideas produced in reaction to the twentieth-century SoundScape. The audible vibrations of new technologies, mechanised warfare and mass culture set in motion a perceptual revolution either side of the Great War in which sound took centre-stage. Hosting and inspiring this revolution, London and Paris, the case-studies upon which the thesis is based, drew in a generation of sound-sensitive thinkers who were keen to explore the aural dimensions of urban experience.
